|2 Beds||2 Baths||350 Sq.m.|
With its 2 bedrooms, panoramic terraces and cosy living areas, it is the ideal place to be in your spare time. A contemporary style home, but ancient in the walls. A contrast that creates warmth, elegance and comfort. The house is located in the heart of the historic centre of Monforte D’Alba. It measures 280 sq.m. + 70 sq.m. of panoramic terraces and it is spread over 4 floors. You will access the house from one of the characteristic town’s alleys. From the front door you get into the entrance hall, that leads you to the cosy living room. Here you’ll immediately notice the brick arches, probably dating back to the Middle Ages, as well as the flooring, made from ancient boards of an old farmhouse in the Alta Langa. From here you will find the first terrace of the house. The view over the town, the vineyards and the Langhe is spectacular.
Stepping down to the ground floor you reach the kitchen, dining room, guest bathroom and a lovely closed veranda, where you can sit down and relax, while enjoying the sun coming in. The veranda is directly connected to a small courtyard, where you can put a dining table for al-fresco dinners or arrange a sitting area in the open air. This is more than a privilege for a house in the historic centre, this is unique! The dining room is full of modern details, such as two radiators in the shape of elongated ellipses – very original. The kitchen was created in the area of the old manger, and an architectural element has been preserved and transformed into a cup holder. The worktop is in porphyry and canaletto walnut. On the floor there is a small window overlooking the library downstairs. If you go further downstairs, you reach the cellar, where you can store your precious collection of Barolo wines. At the moment, it’s been arranged as a reading room, with sofas and a big bookcase, with a selection of very good titles. On top of that, this room is connected to another courtyard. During nice and warm sunny days, you can move your chaise outside and read your favorite books outdoors. The second floor can be reached via a staircase in wood, iron and stone – one of the most interesting architectural elements in the house. Here’s where the sleeping area has been arranged with 2 double bedrooms and a bathroom. The originality is given by the materials used for the doors. Barriques style in iron and glass. The master bedroom has three windows overlook the valley, with beautiful views over Monforte and Langhe with its charming vineyards. The second bedroom has a cosy fireplace. Through the main bathroom you will reach the highest terrace and from here the view is breathtaking.
